    Default What are you buying this month? November 2020

    Guess I'll be kicking off this month too
    Three different couriers arrived today within 30 minutes. Two of them brought this stuff:


    Austrian Taurus in Railjet livery. Matching coaches are in the pipeline



    Coaches for the recently acquired PRR GG1



    And four water cranes by Faller

    The Austrian Taurus is beautiful.

    It most certainly is.
    I just couldn't resist. Even though it's era 6 I kept returning to it in my mind and on the web.

    The Fotomat is a classic! I've never seen one on a layout before. Utilize it!

    Yes, That's what I was talking about. Though it wasn't from Preiser, instead it was from NOCH. See below.

    Default Picked up the Broadway Limited set from Kato

    A little background, when I was a young child, I'd go to the hobby store with my Grandmother and see these tiny maroon passenger cars on display. As life went on, I realized they were early n scale and Pennsylvania. A good part of what landed me in n scale was the memory of those tiny perfect train cars. This November I finally broke down and made a big addition to the fleet, I picked up Kato's 2 sets of Broadway Limited cars and 2 of their E8's. Just thrilled with the workmanship on these and that maroon paint definitely makes my hear sing.

    Just received a couple more 48' containers for the intermodal train.

    Pulling the trigger on an Amtrak train, Superliner phase IV. First set of Kato cars have been shipped. Shopping for a locomotive, and a second set of cars. No pictures yet!

    Assembling some kits I purchased as a set of random parts. Not all of the parts are there, so I may take a dremel to some of the walls to give them the look of being ruined...

    Well, we are now officially on the run up to Christmas, and Christmas is about presents, right ? So I decided to beat the crowds and get my Christmas shopping done early, for myself

    First up were these domed carriage roofs off ebay. They are cast in smooth plastic by ??? They will be fitted to some old Rivarossi heavy weights to represent the royal train to be pulled by my Hudsons

    Next up, the naughty 'big' present This one took a lot of searching to find at an affordable price and in the end turned up on German ebay of all places. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you; The mighty Concor 2-10-2 Soon to be chopped up and rebuilt into something even a little more jaw dropping BUT, and this is a 'BIG' but, I am making myself finish the 'problematic' second Hudson that I'm building A brace of 'Royal' Royal Hudson's before I allow myself to get stuck into this loco. Good things come to those who wait. Err, that doesn't apply to my Christmas shopping though

    Thanks, Tom

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be

    Er, lemme guess. Hmmmm.

    Got it! You found a photo of an obscure CP 4-4-6-2 (Chilliwack class)

    I dunno. Just making that up.

    @Cedarbarnbuilder:

    Looks to me like the walls are all there.

    Some sheet styrene for the roofs, some left over glazing for the windows, some paint, and you'd have three working buildings.

    for the two on the left, you could also kitbash the entry ways out of styrene and add a couple of doors.

    The one in the middle would be the problematic one. I'm not sure what would go into the 4 untrimmed holes on the front.

    No need to destroy them, unless that's the look you're trying to achieve.

    Yes, bay windows are now installed. The fate of these three buildings has been decided... They are going to be part of the town area.






    The other buildings which I did not picture will be cut up to be 'destroyed' for the ghost town area. These particular buildings were purchased assembled with terrible paint jobs (nothing like above...) and have been painted over white in anticipation for their impending ruin. With piles of rubble in place of parts of the walls, hobo squatters living in the ruins, etc.
